High-precision Rotation Speed that compares to Direct-drive
This drive system employs a new PRS3 (Platter Rotation
Speed Servo System) that detects insensible changes of the platter
rotation speed by a contactless optical sensor settled at the spindle
base, and controls motor speed after calculation by an on-board
microcomputer. It realizes a Belt-drive mechanism with higher precision
that is not outdone by Direct-drive turntables. The TN-570 achieved both
sleek design and cogging-free rotation precision that compares to a
What is PRS3?
PRS3 (Platter Rotation Sensing Servo System) is a non-contact type servo
system that monitors rotation speed of the platter. By reading the
encoder pattern on a circular plate that is directly connected to the
axis of the platter with an optical sensor, the TN-570's servo computer
with unique algorithm controls the DC motor to maintain accurate
rotation speed of the platter where a vinyl disc is located, while
conventional servo system monitors/controls rotation speed of the motor
that may not be exactly the same as that of platter due to slip or
deflection of the belt, unless an over-weight platter is employed for
inertia moment. With the PRS3, the TN-570 achieved both low-profile
cabinet and high precision rotation speed with <0.1% of
wow-and-flutters and <±0.2% of rotating speed deviation.
High-precision Spindle and Anti-static Carbon-coated Base
By applying carbon coating to the spindle bearing,
hardness is increased and electrification is controlled, providing
excellent static electricity performance.
Large Torque Motor with a floating structure
Employing a rubber cushion, a large torque motor is
settled to float when attached to the chassis. This suppresses the
transmission of vibrations from the motor to the chassis.
Electrical-controlled Speed Selector
The speed selector employs an
electronically-controlled speed changing mechanism between 33-1/3 rpm
and 45 rpm, which does not require bothersome processes of changing the
pulley to another one with different diameter.
Not only speed selector knob, an EP adapter employs a machined aluminum knob for prestigious feeling.
Clear Acrylic Platter that merges elegance with silence
The 16mm-thick full-size platter made of acrylic resin
with high transparency, shines beautifully, reflecting the surroundings
according to the light level suppresses unwanted sympathetic
vibrations. Together with the pattern of the artificial marble, it
presents a unique elegance.
A flat belt is employed to reliably transmit energy to
the motor drive. A urethane flat belt that has little stretch is
employed to reliably drive the acrylic platter. It is also very quiet
and provides excellent durability.
Chassis with Dual Layer structure realizes both weight and style
The cabinet employs artificial marble with
high-density MDF. By combining different materials in a two-layer
structure, this design abates their inherent resonant frequencies and
realizes a clear sound, allowing the artists voices, which are inscribed
in the grooves of the record, to come out vividly.
The artificial marble not only contributes to the elegant appearance, it
is also excellent in terms of weight, allowing the turntable to realize
a heaviness of about 9 kg while retaining a slim and stylish form.
While it has a rigid structure, it is also able to assure a high
Newly designed Tone-arm with Anti-skating Mechanism
The static-balanced S-shaped tone-arm features high
flexibility. You can adjust the tone-arm height optimally for the shell
and cartridge you are using. Also, a high-quality PC-Triple C* conductor
cables are employed for the tone-arm cable, so that the phono signal
captured by the needle from the delicate vinyl record is transmitted
with pure quality.
MM-type Cartridges by audio-technica
An MM-type cartridge equivalent to audio-technica
AT100E is already installed at the factory, as the universal type
head-shell employs PC-Triple C wiring for pure signal travel.
Built-in Phono Equalizing Amplifier
Since a phono equalizing amplifier is built-in, you'll
enjoy vinyl record sound by connecting the TN-570 directly to an
existing amplifier that do not equip phono inputs. In addition, the
phono equalizing amplifier employs an OPA1602 SoundPlus® Op-amp which is
designed to provide high quality audio. The detailed analog signal
transmitted from the cartridge is restored to the original audio signal
without distortion and lossless.
Optical/USB Digital and Phono/Line Analog Outputs
With a high-precision A/D converter made by Cirrus
Logic, the TN-570 delivers optical digital output up to 192kHz/24-bit
PCM which is equivalent to Hi-Res Audio, while a USB output delivers up
to 48kHz/16-bit digital audio to your PC. These two outputs allows you
to save your vinyl collection digitally on a PC/Mac or CD-R/RW discs for
car hi-fi, or enjoy superior details of the sound by connecting to your
favorite D/A Converter unit.
In the analog audio output part, a pair of gold-plated RCA Pin jacks
deliver either Phono or Line level output to fit your existing hi-fi
Honeycomb-shaped Bottom Case
The bottom cover employs a honeycomb pattern that
prevents unwanted sympathetic vibrations. The thin bottom cover, which
melds into the stylish design, uses a honeycomb structure for the
interior to prevent unwanted sympathetic vibrations.
Height Adjustable Feet
The four machined aluminum feet can have their heights
adjusted independently. This allows the turntable to be set up on
surfaces that are not flat. In addition, rubber with excellent
cushioning is used between where the feet are installed and the body of
the unit to suppress the feedback of sound to the cabinet.
Detachable Dust Cover
By removing the dust cover from the unit, you and your guests will enjoy to see how music revives from vinyl record.
Optional Turntable sheet made of Japanese "WASHI" paper sold separately
Turntable sheets are typically made of silicon rubber,
felt or cork, for example. As result of investigating various
materials, however, we concluded that Japanese paper "WASHI" is suitable
in terms of both design and performance. This is the first time that
WASHI, which has good vibration suppression and static electricity
resistance as well as great style, has been employed for turntable
sheets. (Sold separately)。
